Horses: Ulcers and EquiPride

What it is/How it Affects Your Horse:
Changes in eating behavior or in training intensity are two of the most common causes for Gastric Ulcer Syndrome. Ulcers are a type of sore or wound in the lining of the stomach caused by acid. Studies suggest that ulcers are formed when a horse digests large amounts of concentrated grain or pellet food. This is because grain increases hormones in the stomach that release and stimulate acid secretion.

How Agape’s Line of Products May Help:
Testimonial from a large animal veterinarian:
“We get many performance horses with ulcers. Once we get them healed up, we put them on EquiPride and we don’t have any more ulcers. EquiPride is the only thing we need to do. We have documented hundreds of cases and with each case, we don’t need any other medications when using EquiPride.”
